First of all, this wasn't the best BV episode but not the worst. The other reviewer had their facts wrong. First, her name was Hester, not Heather. And they are on a camping trip, not lollygagging around the ranch. Jarrod had his doubts as well. A good episode to see the vulnerable side of Nick that we don't get to see too often. I love how a big strapping hunk of a cowboy can also be a sensitive soul. I thought it was also a good showcase for Eugene and it was a shame they did not continue his character. We also see a rugged side of Audra that is rarely seen, when she is cleaning fish. Any episode with this much Nick is a good one.
